Jesus makes our primary purpose as Christians very simple when he says that we must love God with all of our hearts, minds, and souls. Sometimes our hearts and minds are cluttered with many things, and He gently asks us to make room for Him. As the Christmas season begins, our lives often become overwhelmed with events & celebrations and the preparations that go along with them. I remember one December when the year was ending before I finally had time to remember that the point of all that I had been doing was supposed to be Jesus! If you find your heart becoming cluttered with the busyness and chaos of the holiday, take time to give Jesus back first place, making your love and gratitude to Him be the motivator of all that you do!
"Jesus replied, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.'"
Matthew 22:37 NIV
